CBC report's Michael Champagne, one of five Indigenous Leaders to watch in 2015!
Michael Champagne might be the loudest voice in the North End of Winnipeg. He's a tireless advocate for change in one of the country's most notorious neighborhoods.
He's a founding member of Aboriginal Youth Opportunities, a public speaker and a young man who leads by example.
On Fridays you can find him, megaphone in hand, at the weekly Meet Me at the Bell Tower gatherings. The anti-violence events have been happening for more than three years now.
Champagne acknowledges he may be a very visible community builder in the neighbourhood, but says he's just one of many aboriginal youth leaders trying to make it a safer place.
This year we'll be watching Champagne as he helps kick off a new initiative in the North End called Fearless R2W. It's a group focused on supporting North End families, educating them about how child welfare works. He says for some that will mean the difference between having children at home or in the care of Child and Family Services.
You can follow Champagne on Twitter @northendmc.
